"I see plenty of examples of magical thinking by leaders every day about those who report to them. Uncovering this kind of thinking requires some reflection because it’s often below the surface.

Magical thoughts create ineffective action. They sap your energy. Letting go of them allows you to be able to use that energy for things that are more positive, realistic, and productive. You can uncover your magical thoughts by considering the things that frustrate or irritate you as a leader.

Here are some of the magical thoughts I’ve noticed from leaders, and some ideas on remedying them"
